Sep 20 // great variety of trail, beautiful larch trees in autumn. Wish it wasn't a snowy and low visibility day, even the slight views we had were beautiful. Will be back to scramble Snow Peak!

Muddy trail, off and on sleet. The first few kilometres of the trail are rather boring but the side trail to the lake breaks it up and is beautiful.

We left early in the morning and found the hike quite enjoyable. Three sections of up hill climbs, but worth the views at the top!!! Would definitely do this hike again, but would continue on into Banff National park and camp at US18.

Great hike! I would definitely recommend bringing your bike for the first few kilometres as it is a long gravel road. When you get to the single track it is stunning, beautiful walk through the valley and nice views from the pass. Definitely go sept/oct when the larches are changing.

Fabulous day, not too steep overall. Many seniors out "killing it". Very dog friendly, be prepared for many creek crossings.

For a guy who has grown up in the mountains it really is quite a boring hike with little elevation gain and a so/so view. Super easy and I don't know why it's rated on this app as moderate. Worth a hike for people from the city wanting a decent challenge. Definitely advise that you ride you bike to the point that your not allowed to bike anymore.
